A Tour Through A Guide Book of United States Coins, Part Seven

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

I continue my “tour” through the 68th (2015) edition of A Guide Book of United States Coins. In this series I have been going page by page through this familiar red-covered reference, giving comments that you can tie in with pictures and other information in the book itself. The Guide Book first saw the light of day in 1946 (cover date 1947), edited by Richard S. Yeoman. At the upcoming Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expo in Baltimore later this month, the 2016 edition will be launched.

This week I continue my series traveling through the 68th edition (2015) of A Guide Book of United States Coins. This familiar red-covered reference book has been published yearly since 1946 (the first issue having a 1947 cover date to preserve shelf life). At the forthcoming Whitman Coins & Collectibles Expo in Baltimore in the last week of March the 69th edition will be launched, after which it will be available from bookstores, coin dealers and hobby shops nationwide, as well as on the Whitman Publishing, LLC website.
